Looks good, guys!

A quick comment: When I look at a users profile, the diary is right at the top, and the blogs are listed down below the latest posts. You should put the two together, otherwise people will be more likely to look at the travel diary and miss the blogs.

One more comment - when adding a picture, I select the picture but the picture doesn't show up in the preview spot. At least, I assume it's a preview spot.

But suppose I was traveling, gave the site to a relative, and told them to check it out to see what I was doing. Could they leave a comment after looking at my blog?

Sam's already pretty much covered this, but I'll add my explanation.

Subscribing is open to anyone, so all they have to do is go to your blog, click on the subscribe link and add their name and email address. If they happen to be logged into Travellerspoint, the form will auto-fill with the information they have already entered in Travellerspoint (makes life easy for us TP'ers who might want to subscribe to a few). There's some other options there to subscribe as well using XML feeds, but most people will probably be happy to stick with the Email subscription. Also note that only those who have subscribed by email show up as subscribers in your blog management area (there's no way for us to track those who subscribe to an XML feed)

Commenting is only open to members. We don't like spam in case you hadn't noticed already! If you are already logged in to Travellerspoint, you won't notice anything and will be able ot comment freely - your username and a link to your profile are left when you post a comment. If you aren't logged in, there is a login form displayed where the comment form would be. If you aren't a member yet, you would need to go and sign up at Travellerspoint. You could try logging out and visiting a blog to see what I mean.

You're right, that would make more sense. In fact, I notice it doesn't remove a diary when you move all the entries to a blog.. more work ahead ;)

Hmm, to be clear, we are talking about the popup window where you select a picture? A picture should show up underneath the select box when you select it. Works ok for me, but I must admit I haven't tested that in many browsers - so maybe it's a browser related bug.. What are you using?

IE 6.0. Yes, the pop up window no picture shows up. Just the red X. I tried right-click show picture, but no dice.

Fixed as soon as Peter uploads the changed file. :)

Ok done. Thanks Sander!

I've just finished creating what is the start of the area which will display all the latest entries. Have a look here.

It's a bit premature to launch properly, so I'm not linking to it from anywhere except this forum thread at the moment. Any feedback is certainly welcome at this point. There's a lot more functionality that could be built into that page.

Thanks P&S!

I'm really looking forward to using this.

Just checked it out. That's a very cool feature. Gives people a place to keep checking.

By the way, how many pictures can a person include in their blog emtre?
